Mask of the Bat God

Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of Mask of the Bat God in Mexico City, Mexico. Ask questions or share travel tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this place, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:

The latest theories about this mask (2012) ensure that it is not the bat god but a human priest in his transfiguration to jaguar. However, in the museum it is still called that by tradition.

Again , if I am to make any edits to the article I’ll need a citation please Mario , and a real one at that , not just a date in brackets

About this data I do not have a document. It’s something that Dr. Martha Carmona, curator of the “Culturas de Oaxaca” room mentioned in an interview last year. On the museum page you will find her email.

I will contact her and see her reply
